For the love of reading....

Gala 2020Young readers understand the value of a real book!

Hi & LoisParticipate in our reading program for young school children in Peoria.

Studies show that a child's reading skills and school performance improve if there are books in the home. Research cited by the Literacy Council shows that 61% of children living in poverty do not have a single book for children in the home. Getting books in the home is a real need for many of our students in Peoria.

Look. It's My Book!® was founded to augment the work of the Adopt-a-School Program in Peoria, IL District 150. In the 2015-2016 year we will provide a book to each child in kindergarten through fourth grade six times a year. We currently serve all of the fourteen elementary schools. By helping children have access to books at home, we hope to strengthen learning and instill a life-long love of reading. Our many "Thank You" notes from the children indicate that it seems to be working!

Enjoy the video of one of our distributions. "Thank- You" notes follow!
